Husband and I separated

Jeca asked 12 years ago

Hello here is my story: Husband is 26, I’m 21, we separated after 6 months of marriage. He chose his parents over me. He has never drawn the line with them, he allows them to walk all over him, say anything and everything (including to me), they always wanted to have insight into his (now our) money, love, life, plans, decisions/dilemas, etc… this drove me crazy, I pressured him into talking with me often and he just closed off, and then moved to live back with them. What can I do to help my self (even though he is the one who clearly needs more help than me)? I need to start off with me first before I can help anyone else… and potentially save our marriage.
